Quick Facts

Nassau is the capital of the Bahamas as well as its largest city and commercial center. The city is located on the island of New Province and its population is roughly 70% of the entire
population of the Bahamas. Cable Beach is the recognized hotel district which has five large resorts. Two of these resorts are all-inclusives. Paradise Island is a short ferry ride away and offers a quiet alternative to Nassau.

Flights will take you to Lynden Pindling International Airport is the major airport for the Bahamas. It is located 16 km west of Nassau city center. From the airport, as well as all over the island, the most common means of transportation are rental cars, motor scooters, buses and taxis. The buses (also called Jitneys) operate between 6:30AM – 7:00PM and travel to many parts of the island. Check with your hotel for bus schedules. Ferries travel from downtown Nassau to Paradise Island regularly.

Rental cars are available at the airport as well as at some major hotels. If you are driving, always remember to keep to the left! Taxis are also located at the airport exit as well as at all major hotels.
